Fulham ended their Premier League losing run in impressive style against a struggling Everton
Everton suffered a blow in their bid for Premier League survival as Fulham ended their four-match losing streak with a 3-1 win at Goodison Park.
Everton went into the game only above the relegation zone on goal difference but could fall into the bottom three by the end of the weekend after failing to build on their impressive home form under Sean Dyche.
Fulham, searching for their first league victory since February 18, took a 22nd-minute lead through Harrison Reed but Dwight McNeil’s fine strike 10 minutes before the break gave Everton hope as the first half ended level.
The Toffees started the second period brightly but it was the visitors who went ahead when Harry Wilson finished a fine counter-attack six minutes after half-time. Daniel James added a third for Fulham in the 68th minute and from there Marco Silva’s side cruised to three points.
It’s just the second time Everton have lost in the league at Goodison Park since Dyche took charge. They remain 17th, level on points with 18th-placed Nottingham Forest, who face Manchester United on Sunday while Fulham occupy the 10th position on the log.
